With the start of the new year and with 2018 behind us, I’ve taken some time to reflect on the past year and I look forward to 2019. 2018 was the first year I was able to be a true full time wedding photographer, which has been my goal since I originally began photographing weddings seven years ago! It was a long journey filled with obstacles and failures that turned into learning experiences to better myself and my business. I am very fortunate to have the help and support of my friends and family in pursuing my dream to run my own photography business. I absolutely would not be where I am today without them!
I’d also like to thank all of my clients for being awesome to work with and for supporting my passion for photography! I’ve been fortunate enough to have been selected as a 2019 winner of The Knot Best of Weddings, an award representing the highest-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families, and wedding guests on TheKnot.com. This is the second year in a row Joe Banker Photography has received this award and I’m hoping to continue the trend!
I’ve chosen some of my favorite photos from 2018 to share. I intended to share ten photos but I couldn’t narrow the 18,628 photos I’ve given to my clients down to a mere ten! So here are 40 of my favorites from 2018 in no particular order. Thank you again and here’s to 2019! 🥂
